Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners has advised Solntse Mexico and Mission Foods Stupino, the Russian divisions of the Gruma Group, on their restructuring and on obtaining special economic zone resident status with the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation and other governmental bodies in connection with its investment in a factory in Moscow Region.
